  1. 1. THE ANDROGEN RECEPTOR GGN POLYMORPHISM. Genetic and functional analyses

    Författare :Kristina Lundin; Avdelningen för klinisk genetik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Functional domain; Genetic predisposition; Reproductive function; Sex hormone; Transactivation function; Repeat; Polymorphism; Androgen receptor; Transcription factor; Medicin människa och djur ; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Sammanfattning : Male sex development and reproductive function is regulated by androgens acting via the androgen receptor (AR). The AR harbours two polymorphic repeats of CAG and GGN triplets, encoding glutamines and glycines, respectively. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Genetic, environmental and life-style effects on androgen receptor function

    Författare :Christel Björk; Malmö Molekylärgenetisk reproduktionsmedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reproductive function; smoking; 4 .4-DDE; persistent organic pollutants; prostate cancer; Androgen receptor; prostate specific antigen; CAG polymorphism; TCDD; aryl hydrocarbon receptor; CB-153;

    Sammanfattning : Androgens regulate male reproductive function and their effects are mediated through the androgen receptor (AR). The AR gene contains a polymorphic CAG repeat, encoding a stretch of glutamines, affecting the transcriptional activity of the AR. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On the structure-function relationship of p73

    Författare :Ulrika Nyman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : The development of multicellular organisms requires a balance between the cellular processes of proliferation, differentiation and death. These processes are important throughout the whole life of the organism. Daily, the DNA in our cells is under attack by agents that can cause damage. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Modulation of p53's transcriptional function by small molecules

    Författare :Fedor Nikulenkov; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : p53 tumour suppressor is a transcriptional factor which induces apoptosis or growth arrest in response to stress thus eliminating damaged cells. p53 function is frequently abrogated in tumours either via inactivation mutations in the TP53 gene or by elevated activity of p53 negative regulators HDM2 and HDMX.

  5. 5. Modulation of nuclear receptor function by interacting proteins

    Författare :Waffa Osman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Nuclear receptors are a family of transcription factors involved in many biological processes. They represent key potentials as therapeutic targets for several clinical conditions such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and cancer, because their activity is modulated by small molecules.
